I decided to start with a piece of terrain because it would let me settle on colours. I hate looking at most of the terrain you see online in tutorials and it’s just all grey.

Felstad was a wonderous city built by the most powerful mages ever to have existed. Plain grey? I don’t think so. This idea will come back to change this project completely in a few posts…

I’ve had this kit since I bought it second hand quite some time ago. After taking it out the packaging there was a little damage and a few bits I wouldn’t have glued on without painting but overall it is in good nick.

Now my first mistake here was not just re-priming the whole thing. I’m a cheapskate and the primer layer was in good condition. The statue has been zenithal highlighted but everything else was a solid black.There’s a lot of skulls though. A lot of skulls that I didn’t want to be stone but actual skulls. The biggest rods are the ones we make for our own backs.

I forgot to take a starting photo but this one was after some test pieces. Doesn't look like much terrain does it?I forgot to take a starting photo but this one was after some test pieces. Doesn't look like much terrain does it?

For the terrain builders out there, I also committed the cardinal sin of using my hobby paints.

I know.

I know.

I picked colours that I either don’t use other places or have more than one pot of and don’t remember buying. And that wasn’t black. I have 5 pots of black. I know not how.

Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out as a terrain piece and as a test for the colours for my Felstad. It was time consuming for sure but I’d rather take more time and be happy to look at it for the next twenty years.

Colours used:

Stonework: Coal Black (P3), Greatcoat grey (P3), Death World Forest (Citadel), Stormvermin Fur (Citadel), Rhakarth Flesh (Citadel). Highlights were done by mixing in a little Stormvermin or Pallid Wych Flesh (Citadel) to the base colours

Skulls: several coats of Pallid Wych Flesh and then Contrast Skeleton Horde (Citadel).

Flowers: a green from Citadel, I forget which one and and Cavalry Brown (Vallejo). Why are there green roses in a frozen city? Buggered if I know but it adds in more colour

Ground: Charred Brown (Vallejo) and dry brushed with Steel Legion Drab (Citadel)

Wash throughout was a black wash made from some of the oodles of black paint.
